Subject: Kimberly Clark doing what?!!
How novel; except for the boys abroad..nobody's bleeding in this Kimberly Clark production! Probably the first; certainly the last.

Jam Handy for once NOT doing a Chevy film. Here they feature Kimberly-Clark (Kleenex company) producing paper products during World War II, and also a machine gun nest (!?).

Subject: Kleenex for war!
Silly little film that screams that Kimberly-Clark is making paper products for the war!

Film starts out oddly though, as if I've seen this film before, it reminded me of From Dawn to Sunset where many factories are shown, and people entering them, After that, it starts being this rather normal production line film, with women (or girls) just normally handling paper boxes et al. For some odd reason, the narrator yells that all of this paper is being made "for the war!" Yes, maybe that piece of paper will be used for an important war document! Or not. Funny how people were shown doing stuff for "the war" and they were seen making Kotex boxes. Finally, some footage IS shown of an actual warehouse being converted to make gun racks, but it doesnt make up for the silliness of the first half.
